Street closures are planned in Providence Sunday to make way for the 9th annual Providence marathon. The race starts at 7 a.m. and lasts until roughly 2 p.m.
Despite an early mix-up over race registration, some 3,000 runners are signed up to take part, several hundred more than organizers were expecting.
Earlier this year, hundreds of runners signed up for the Providence marathon under a company that no longer organizes the race. After legal action, the current organizer was able to honor all registrations.
